My order has been sitting somewhere for just shy of two weeks. If it is still sitting there tomorrow I will contact GearBest.

I have never had this happen with GearBest. I guess my luck ran out.

You can’t trust the tracking info from Pos Malaysia. According to the tracking info, below my shipment never made it to the USA. This was delivered to my door on 3/6, 19 days after the last scan.

Anyone else have an issue with Gear Best saying that an ordered item cannot be shipped via IB/America Line & then ask for an additional fee to ship it via a slower method?

Anything with Li cells? Even coin cells?

I ordered (from FT, not GB) a doodad with a teeny remote, and that had to go by Singapore Air.

N days in transit, not very informative, but I finally got it.

Might’ve even been signed for, but no indication on the tracking page that the signature was recorded.

Nope. It was for a light (HC30). Ordered before the Chinese New Year so I wasn’t surprised when it didn’t ship right away. About two weeks later I got a msg from them saying it couldn’t be shipped by that method. Then they asked for an additional $1.70 to ship it by an equivalent method (which turned out to be DHL).

I was annoyed but enough to fight too much (made the argument with myself “It’s only $1.70”) so went ahead and paid it. That is less of a hassle than arguing back and forth.

The light arrived yesterday. On the positive side it was a fast turn around from DHL, on the negative…it arrived DOA.

Sigh.

 After several orders since my previous post where I also required assistance, I found an easy solution to tracking my packages. If you pay for tracking, this method works. Well, it does for my location among the masses, anyway. I did not read all the previous posts to see if what I am posting has already been posted.

7 – Bookmark tracking results for later (or whatever).

And you can dick around with the url if need be, so if you have

www.whatever.com/tracking?this=that&trackID=1234567890&lang=en

you can always rearrange it to

www.whatever.com/tracking?this=that&lang=en&trackID=1234567890

so that the tracking number is last. Makes it easier to c&p.

Try it and make sure it works (never know when you get an overly anal-retentive website).

 

Then, all you need to do is c&p the tracking number, pull up any url to www.whatever.com, then just overwrite the old # with the new #.

 

Lather, rinse, repeat for other carriers (USPS, UPS, FedEx, PostNL, SYPost, Singapore Air, whatever…).

That's my method, and (KeepItSimpleStupid) was my plan. I bookmark all carrier links to use as you mention.

I save them to a folder on my tool bar for quick-click convenience, and adapt the number for tabbed tracking of all my packages.

Once the package arrives, I delete said bookmark and carry on.

How long do you guys think I should wait before I reach out to GB? Next time I’ll pick the IB shipping option for sure.


Quoting my own post from 3/6 – today is 3/14 and I still haven’t seen any of my four orders, the earliest of which I placed on 2/13. What’s a typical shipping time to the US with GB’s free shipping option? I’m getting impatient Smile

I placed an order on February 13th and according to the tracking it has been sitting in the US since February 23rd. When I opened a ticket last week they said that it can take 30-35 days.

Interesting that we ordered on the same day.

I hesitate to order from GearBest now without tracking. Sad. Used to be pretty much OK.

Even with tracking through IB, my last order was a nightmare in slow motion.

Granted, nothing has ever been lost, but it’s just the… L O N G …waiting and not knowing, and no tracking updates that bother me.

I know you guys are frustrated. FacepalmSad … Package just sitting somewhere in the USA since February 23, 20 days at this point; is just amazing……. in a bad way. Sad

If I read your posts correctly it does not even tell you where in the USA either does it?

To give an example of my personal continued good luck using the USA Express option with GearBest, which usually comes into the USA through America Line(IB) (International Bridge) or America Line(SF) before being transferred to the US Postal Service for final delivery.

On 7 March 2017 I placed an order with GearBest, the package contained three items which total cost were under $60.00 US. The shipping cost to use USA Express was $0.90 for this package. This package happened to come into the USA by way of IB. The USPS has it and it is scheduled to be delivered to me tomorrow, 16 March 2017.

For me, that was a .90 cents well spent.

Tracking has been accurate as always (my experience with many orders). When IB or SF hand the package off to the USPS, start tracking by USPS Tracking for the most up to date results. Thumbs Up

I think you guys packages will show up, but I sure do hate it for you. Sitting in the USA for that long is just shameful……. Sad

Good luck…………. Thumbs Up

Yup. That’s all it says “Arrived in US”. USPS has no record of the tracking number. If I order from them again I will try the IB.

I have ordered many times without a problem until now. The fact that it has been sitting there for 20 days is mind boggling.

Same here, my four orders together total less than $50, so we’re not talking about a lot of money. I’m really just eager to try out my new lights.

I’m also in the same boat, for the package that arrived in the US it doesn’t say where. None of my four packages has any updates since 2/24. One doesn’t appear trackable at all:

Hi ‘mrstealyourgains’, you posted the above back on Mon, 03/06/2017 – 12:25.
Have you had any news of anything yet?

If not, I found the below at the POS Malaysia website. It shows no further tracking update since the 23rd, as I am sure you are aware.

I am thinking it is somewhat ironic concerning the “POS” part of the POS Malaysia name… but that is another story. Wink

I am sure you are aware of all this except I did not know if you had see the phone numbers and email address of POS Malaysia’s “How can we help you?” section….. as it is in fine print and somewhat hidden on the site.

Anyway, IF you have not, I copied & pasted them below.

Good luck and let us know how this tale ends. Smile

Teacher,

Thanks for the post and link. I am in the same boat. I think that POS is about right.

According to GearBest it shipped on March 14th so we are at 32 days and counting. The package hasn’t moved in 23 days.

Teacher,

Thanks for the post and link. I am in the same boat. I think that POS is about right.

According to GearBest it shipped on March 14th so we are at 32 days and counting. The package hasn’t moved in 23 days.

My pleasure Bob. Thumbs Up … Yeah the POS part is surely ironic……. Wink

I was just thinking the part below, which I posted again; if you had not seen it….. might be helpful in at least determining where the packages were being “held hostage” here in the USA.

Good luck my friend & keep us posted.

Best regards,
Chuck

@teacher – thank you for posting that, I’ll try giving them a call next week when I have some free time. (Unless the lights show up in the meantime, fingers crossed!!)

Did the “passenger pidgeons” look worn out when they arrived with the packages?? Big Smile

That’s encouraging news for sure.

My missing order was placed on February 13th and the tracking number says that it arrived in the US on February 23rd. No further updates for my package either. USPS has no record of the tracking number. I am guessing that our packages are in the same place.

Seeing as it has been 32 days I opened a service ticket at GearBest. To be fair this is the first time I have had a problem I normally get my packages from them in 15-18 days; including packages from Malaysia.

How do you like the Utorch? I have two Efest 14500’s charged and waiting.

@teacher haha I don’t know where they spent the last month, but they’re here now

@HorizontalHunter I hope yours shows up soon. I don’t have any 14500s, so I’ve only tried the Utorch with an Eneloop so far. I love it and don’t have any of the button issues anyone else reported. Best AA light I own!

And a question – I’m trying to place another order from Gearbest with the shipping option recommended here, but even when I select it on the item page when I check out my total is the pre-shipping total. Then the Paypal approval page is only for the subtotal amount. How are you guys paying for the upgraded shipping?
